I'm getting ready to build some new painted cabinets and was researching poplar vs. birch and came across some posts about how inferior poplar has become. I haven't made a lot out of poplar but what I have has been fine so far. I'm aware of the normal shifting of wood but is there something specifically making poplar worse?
